In preparation for the summer opening of Moulin Rouge! on Broadway, the Al Hirschfeld Theatre has switched over its marquees. Following the musical’s world premiere in Boston, the stage adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s film, starring Aaron Tveit, Tony winner Karen Olivo, and Tony nominee Danny Burstein, is set to begin performances June 28.

Tveit, Oliva, and Burstein are slated to reprise their performances as Christian, Santine and Harodl Zidler respectively. Also returning are Sahr Ngaujah as Toulouse-Lautrec, Tam Mutu as the Duke of Monroth, Ricky Rojas as Santiago, and Robyn Hurder as Nini.
Alex Timbers (Beetlejuice) directs the production, which features choreography by So You Think You Can Dance’s Sonya Tayeh, a book by John Logan (Red), and a score comprised of the original songs and pop standards heard in the Baz Luhrmann movie as well as new hits released in the 17 years since its premiere.
